Shiki Beverly Hills
Shiki Beverly Hills serves traditional Japanese cuisine known as “washoku,” which signifies a respect for the natural beauty of the changing seasons. “Shiki” means the four seasons in Japanese, and it is a philosophy reflected in its approach to food, which highlights the freshest seasonal ingredients using time-honored, traditional Japanese-style cooking methods and techniques.
Shiki continues to be one of the best places for Japanese food in LA... it just happens to fly under the radar. The sushi omakase is pretty reasonable too, considering what you get and the quality of the food and execution. I always enjoy sitting in front of Jun-san or Hiro-san.
Very quiet, not crowded, but excellent food. Not sure why the place isn't packed.
All the reviews from Yelp and Open table has been positive. I do agree that Shiki has great quality sushi as everything that we had was delicious. We ordered a omakase meal for $190/person for a party of 4 due to an anniversary celebration. The meal was not what I had expected in terms of value. Granted, the food was good, good quality raw fish, but for the price that we paid, I had expected a bit more high scale. I've been to Japan and had omakase experience. I've been to Atelier Crenn and Quince in San Francisco among other fine dinning experience, therefore, for the amount of money spent, I would hope to have a bit more upscale dinning experience. We did not leave hungry, but disappointed by the presentation and value for dollar. If you're looking for quality raw fish, then Shiki is the place to go, but if you're looking for an experience of Omakase experience, you'd be disappointed.
Very nice and welk educated service! Exzellent good
We will come back !
One of the best dining experiences I’ve had. Our expectations were very high yet somehow exceeded.
Fantastic omakase with fresh ingredients. Grilled cherry tomatoes were an unexpected highlight.
The quality of sushi here is second to none! Chef Joon in particular really knows how to create the best combination of flavors. Shiki is without a doubt my go to spot in west LA.
Shiki is a GEM!. It is my favorite authentic Japanese restaurant in LA. Awesome seafood and meat flown in from Japan!
Superb food quality, Superb service and friendly well versed / informed staff!
Thank you as always. I thoroughly enjoyed season Hairy Crab and Hida Beef.
Friends getting together!
Had lunch with my parents. Although it's a long drive from home, we always try to go when I'm visiting from the East Coast.
Mori san and Nao san gave my wife and I such a special dinner for my birthday. They are both extremely talented, and consummate professionals. They're such nice guys, too! Would definitely return. Thanks Shiki!
Definitely didn’t meet expectations based on the mostly five star ratings on Yelp that we based our choice on. We went for the Omakase. Except the Sushi platter and the Wagyu beef, everything else was mediocre. Service was good, but I would probably look for a little more clarity when the servers explain the items served. Overall, an ok place and wouldn’t recommend for a special occasion especially if you look at the price point.
True Japanese dining. The finest food, outstanding service.
We had an amazing birthday dinner here at Shiki. The staff were both friendly and attentive to our needs.
Authentic japanese food, good location and great service, the only minor comment is the sushi rice little bit sour.
Very good service. Food is ok, good but not great
Beautiful Japanese decor. Elegant presentation. Fish was incredibly fresh. Lunch was a good value.
Shiki really outdid itself for our group of four. We optd for an Omakase but asked for an emphasis on exceptional quality over quantity. The toro was the best we’ve had , but more importantly, the preparation was very creative. Great staff as well
Great Omakase, and great authentic japanese food in Beverly hills
Exceptional as always. One of the true undiscovered gems in Los Angeles. If you like authentic high-end Japanese food and sushi, you owe it to yourself to give Shiki a try. Sit in front of Hiro if you like Kaiseki style, or Mori if you like traditional sushi.
the food was pretty average and not worth the money.
We expect more and it was too expensive... We would not come back again.
Pricey for what it was
Exacting standards on display in all facets of this restaurant experience. Super high quality ingredients and dishes served with the utmost care. Highly recommend this great place for casual, special event, and business diners.
Horrible absolutely terrible ran outside ruined weekend
Omakase lunch special is a great deal. Fish is super fresh and staff is very nice.
Quality not up to par for the price.
Omakase is so good!
The way they display is beautiful and looks fun.
Especially, I like "wagyu". It's so soft and delicious.
We can eat authentic Japanese cuisine here.
Fantastic omakase experience!
Sushi was excellent- very fresh and delicious. A5 wagyu was overcooked, and very disappointed in that one $75 dish.
Ambience lacks - not enough people in a large space and so the wait staff is almost overly attentive. Food was good / sushi delicious but not earth shattering. This is not n’naka for example. For the price not coming back.
Definitely over-priced and over-rated restaurant.
We (me, my husband and our 4years old baby) spent $650 for mothers day dinner.
Ok service but everything was very disappointing.
No Wonder there was not many customers on Mothers Day dinner time.
If you have never have the best rice that a piece of fresh fish could ever sit on, you must come to Shiki. If you are so very lucky to sit at the sushi bar in front of The Legendary chef Mori Onodera, the Rice Guru, you are in for a treat for not only a delicious meal, but also a memorable night of stories about growing rice in Japan, Uruguay, and about true passion for the respect of food. You don’t need to go to Japan to experience authentic Omasake from various variety of imported Japanese seaweed, freshest fish, shrimp and beef, all served on unique serving dishes made in Japan as well. I’ve only one warning, be very hungry when you go. You will need another one hour to walk off those extra dishes you did not expect to find room in your already very full stomach, especially the most spectacular rice below the fish at the end..
Buena atención, un lugar muy japonés, el precio está elevado.
Excellent food and very friendly service. Overall, a great place to dine for any occasion.
The best sushi I've had in LA. Will definitely go back. Also, Narissa, our server was adorable and fun!
Timing was off between receiving cooked dishes and sushi. While still enjoying the hot food, the sushi came out in waves and had to sit while we finished the other dishes. Omakase nigiri should be served one at a time to fully appreciate the fish and rice...as soon as it’s prepared. Service seemed a bit rushed. Good sake selection. Tempura and wagyu cooked perfectly.
The food was amazing till we got sliced jalapeño peppers with a fly in them and they barely made up for it. Was not right at all especially since we paid over $500 for our bill
Great service.Expense depends on what you order but well worth it.Japanese personnel are most pleasant.
Great ! Sushi is incredible
